Seek History Data in Southern States House.to-House Canvass to was nothing of ImportanCe In the eel Be Made in Search of Old Documents. Washington.--Pians for collecting millions of old letters, diaries, sta- tistical and other original documents calculated to shed light on southern history were outlined here by Dr. Joseph Gregolre de Roulhae Hamil- ton, professor of history at the Uni- Versity of North Carolina, speaking under the auspices of the local chap- tar of the alumnae of that state's col. lege for women. The collection has been started on a mnall scale, but it Is to be broad- ened now that preparations have been made to provide a fireproof structure for the State university at Chapel Hill, N. C in which to pre- serve the data. Doctor Hamilton said that the ma- teflai would be available to histori. ans or other research workers inter- rated in learning actual social, eco- omie and other basic conditions con- 1acted with the settlement and devel- epment of the South. The plans contemplate a collection throwing light upon the past and lpreaent of the states of Maryland, ,Virginia, South Carolina, North Car- elias, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Ken- tacky, Missouri and Texas. To Ransack Through Garrets. Material will be sought not only In Old garrets, closets,, trunks and cal. lars In those states but from South- erners who have moved elsewhere and who have such letters and docu meats. Where material Is given by or concerning, those now living it Will lie sealed and not .thrown open tO Inspection until such tlme as may be designated by the donors. Doctor Hamilton emphasized the rgent need of rescuing such papers ivw from the danger of fire, rats and other causes of destruction. In recent months Doctor Hamlllon ]ms rummaged in several attles in fforth Carolina for letters which the owners thought uselesL Some of the communications found are consider- ably more than 100 years old. In many instances he discovered thai letters had been burned to get them t of the way. At one farmhouse he ran across a batch of love letters written In the early '80s, which the owner sold would be of no interest to anyone. Pick- ing up one letter at random, Doctor Hamilton discovered that it was from a young man who had gone to Ten- zessee and later to Mississippi. It gave a minute description of the coun- try and social conditions when he at. rived. 8outhern Diaries Found. At Fayettevllle, N. C., Doctor Ham IRon saw a box of yellowed docu- ments, some of them relating to busl- sess matters of a century and a half ligo. Again he was told that there iectlon. He picked up another letter at random. It was from a pioneer seeking Information about a water wheel desired for hls plantation. That communication was a valu able sidelight, Doctor Hamilton said, on an economic condition respecting farm machinery prevailing at the thne, and would prove of great value In constructing the true story of early efforts to Improve production. Re said that he had discovered that many Southerners. from the earliest days, kept diaries after the fashion of New Englanders and that these contained pictures of living condi- tions not yet clearly depicted in his- tory. One diary he found ran from 1866 to 1918. He added that Southerners gen- erally had been more careless than New Englanders or Westerners In keeping their old records and that not until recent years had attempts been made to gather and preserve them for their' value in studying both southern and national history. Calls 81tuatlon Unfortunats. "The whole situation," he said, "is unfortunat'e. The time Is ride to remedy it so far as possible by the establishment of a great library of southern historical material, or to ex- press It, perhaps, more accurately, of southern human records. "With tlm complRtion of plans for Its new and permanent library build- Ing, authorized by the last leglsla ture, the Univereity of North Caro- lina, In pursuance of a plan It has contemplated for many years, Is now undertaking the establishment of such a collection and beginning ac- tive prosecution of that work." The North Carolina material al- ready Includes 40.000 bound volumes and pmnphiets. These relate also.to early affairs in Virginia, South Car ollna, Tennessee and Georgla. In ad- dition, there are many newspaper clippings that have been classified, As new material Is received it will be filed and catalogued and made readily accessible to the historical student. "The southern collection, as planned." said Doctor Hamilton, "will Include. so far as possible today, ev ery book or pamphlet of any kind on any subject written In the South or by a Southerner, every, one which deals in any way with the southern states, their people or their problems` Many Kinds of Material. 'It will contain state publications of every sorL general historical works, monographs, biographies, town, county and other local his- tories, genealogical works, essays poetry, fiction, sermons, files of perl- odlcals, statistics, maps, broadsides, the catalogues, minutes, proceedings and reports of educational bodies and Instlttinns. fraternal orders, com- mercial, professional, phllanthropic. religious, social, patriotic and scien- tific organizations, as complete files III'I:::II1:.,,.......,... Henpecked Husband Organize in Turkey Adana (Turkey in Asia).--A group of 200 men recently con- vened in the dead of night at Chall mountains, organized the Order of Henpecked Husbands, and drew resolutions to apply to the English fraternity of that name for affiliation. Each ap- plicant must take oath that within the last seven years he has faithfully performed the following even domestic func- tions seven thnes: Did the family washing. Hung It on the clothes line In broad daylight. Scrubbed the kitchen floor. Took care of the baby or the babies while wife went to the local movie. Prepared the Sunday dinner. Darned socks, and Made the beds. :::1"':1:: .... ,, '':::::'',:''' ,r of southern newspapers a can be se- cured and files of papers from other sections which carry southern ma- terial. "Nor will It be confined to printed material. It will include great masses of manuscript material, such as diaries, unpublished reminiscences or other autobiographical writings" letters of every deseriptlon, planta- tion records" and the ledgers and other records of industrial and busi- ness undertakings. "It will contain not only papers and letters of prominent !ndlviduais and families, but all kinds of records which .reveal the life and thought of the masses of the people." Doctor Hamilton said that this ma- terial would show hitherto unknown facts In economical, social, religious, scientific and political fields. He predicted that the South within fifty years would be "the scene of s "tre- mendous economic and social devel- opment" and that the matter to be gathered would enable it In the Im- mediate future to "wisely chart its course." The plans contemplate sending In- vestigators through several states on a house.to-house canvass to collect all available documents up to at least as late a period as 1880 or 1885. Waiter Peels Grapes for Prince of India Paris.--The Aga Khan of India, whom England accords a salute of eleven guns, ia head of the Ismalll Mohammedans, The Aga Khan doesn't like tan skins of grapes, and he is the kind of a prince who won't be bothered by any such small Job as skinning. When he came to Paris for the rac- ing season he brought with him a lit- tle Jewel case in which were two small silver instruments, one to hold the grape and the other to Jerk off the skin. He turned them over to the maitre d'hotel of the restaurant wlmre he usually dines. Now, whenever the Aga Khan favors that place by appearing a waiter peels grapes, so all the Aga Khan has to do Is to put them in his mouth and swallow. - "NINETY DAYS MEAN NOTHING TO ME," DRIVER TELLS JUDGE @ his Chauffeur Had to Laugh When Arrested for qolatlng Park- Ing Rules. Omaha.--Patrolman Percy Saplon- lcka was irritated when he saw a large, expensive sedan parked in a "no parking" space. "What're you doing in that safety lone?" he demanded of the chauffeur. Ths chauffeur lolled back in his meat and dragged comfortably on his elgaret. **This place Is good enough for me," be announced "You can't scare me2 "'Come and see a Judge," shouted ISaplonicka. In Police court Judge George lqolmes was equally Irritated. "JUst because you drive a high. priced car you can't get away with that." said he. "I ought to give you 80  days." "Ha, ha," laughed the chauffeur, "You laugh at me and I'll give you 60 days." threatened Judge Holmes. "Ha, ha," gurgled the chauffeur, "you still make me laugh." 'Tut this Impudent fellow In Jail for 90 days,"exclalmed Judge Holmes. "How do you like that, my good fel- low ?" "Pretty fair for a police Judge," chuckled the chauffeur. "It doesn't Impress me greatly, but that's be cause time doesn't mean much to me anyway. You see, I'm one of Warden Fenton's chauffeurs at 'the Nebi-aska penitentiary at Lincoln. "i'm in for life." Bonds Worth $105,000 Found in Waste Paper London, Conn.--Missing from the office of the First Natlon'H Bond Corporation of New York and Boston 4the bond department of the First No- tlonal Banl of Boeton In New York} for several days, a package contain- Ing negotiable bonds valued at $105,- 000 was found in a bale of waste pa- per at a paper box plant. The bonds disappeared shortly after they had been received in New York from the Union Trust Company of Cleveland by registered mall, On the slight chance that they mlgl be found in the waste paper removed from the offiO.n that day, the bond corporation oflTcials communicated with the company which disposes of the paper lad learned that it had been baled and shipped to the Robert Gait company. When one of the bond company offi- cials arrived here be was told that six of the twenty-two baler received already had been ground into pulp. An examination of the other sixteen hales was started and before the search had gone very far the envelope containing the bonds was found. The old Colon public market at Ha vans is to be refurbisied and mads into a national muum. l I L I Ill I| T Diary Manes Garden Growing Much Easier A dfary is of inestim,qble value In earing for a garden. Entries should be nmde exery day not only of tim work dram, but its results ms well as weather conditions. Experience is the most valuable teacher, but Its lessons often are wasted Oil poor nlemories. A diary nmkes information on all dis- coverles and observations readily and permanently available for reference. In plqnting the wise househoh}er uses a stake and line to make rows straight and strives to give the garden an attractive appearance as well as making it productive. By tim skillful use of vines, flowers ant] a little land- scaping with pergolas and arches, it is possible to add immeasurably to the appearance of the garden. There is such a thing, however, as overnicety. For example, some gar- deners in planting green and wax beans go tbrough the ordeal of plac- ing each eye down. Despite their claims to greater success by this meth- od the improvement Is not suffielently Imposing to warrant that much extra trouble. Germination may he hastened by covering the seeds with water before covering tlmm with earth. Sometimes, as in tim case of parsley, which is slow In germinate. It is profitable to soak the seeds tn warm water 12 min- utes in the house before planting them. Park Spaces Now Seen as Commercial Asset Indiana, with 7,854.71 acres in city and county parks, stands tenth among tim 25 most populous states In the nation in such park space, according to a national survey by the Play- ground and Recreation Association of America. California lea, ls wltb 20.858 acres, and New York state is second with 19A15. Following Indiana are Min- nesota with 9,030 acres and Missouri with 7,733. Of 54 Hoosier cities reporting to tim sarvey, Indianapolis had the larg- est total park area, 2,566.16 acres, and Evansville was second with 623 acres. The smallest town to report a park was Fowlerton, population 225. Parks are promoting health and child safety and reducing Juvenile de- linquency, as well as adding to the beauty of communities, says L. H, Weir, director of the study. The use of city parks for active recreation has been tim most significant trend in recent park derelopment. Though more than a billion dollars have been spent in the United States to acquire and equip municipal and county parks, few cities as yet rrovlde adequate park facilities and hundreds of small towns have reserved no park space, the survey revealed, in urban com- munities, children's playgTounds and neighborhood recreation fields are the greatest lack. Mr. Weir pointed out. Hedge Worth Consideration A well-cared-for hedge adds a touch of privacy to your home and is more pleasing than a wooden or wire* fence. The most commonly used shrub for hedging Is the privet. The best re- sults will be obtained-if three-year- old plants are used. They should be cut back about one-half their size and set several inches deeper than they were planted In the nursery. For single row planting, the plants should be set 12 inches apart in a row and placed about" one foot back from the lot line to allow for the spread of the hush. If double row planting la done, the plants should be set 18 Inches apart. No two plants should be opposite one another. This will give a zlg-zag ef- fect. Shrubs as Screens Often In planting the garden, some sort of screen effect is required to hide an unsightly object; somelhing for quick growth with sufficient height and foliage density. For this p'urpose there is nothing better titan the tall, quick-growing shrubs Deutzia, Rose Weigela, Smoke Bush. Mock Oravge, Rose of Sharon and Bush Honey- suckle. If several varieties of these plants are planted around the yard, they .not only afford beauty, but also a feeling of privacy and seclusion. Pays to Plan Garden in the creatlon of your garden, which should bear the stamp of your individual fancies, let the fiE:st step be the free play of your imagination, Vague day-dreaming, however, will not do It. Your dream garden must be definite, practical. Plan the garden with a fair degree of definiteness be- fore going to the seed store, or sitting down with the catalogues to actually make out the'order for your seeds Details That Improve Home Next to your house, nothing adds more to the Impression people get of your proprty tha the appearance of the steps, walks and drh'eways. And nothing can detract more than worn uneven or shabby approaches Up to Community Publl(. health Is purchasable within natural Ihnitathms; any community can deterndne its own leath rate.- Hermann lls Hare Evidently Had Good Ear for Music The late Rev. R. Eastcote of Exeter, England, once told the story of five choristers who, one Sunday evening. were walking along the banks of the Mersey in Cheshire. After a time they sat down on the grass and began to sing an anthem. A hare passing with great swiftness toward the place where they were sitting stopped al about twenty yards distance from them. She appeared to be highly delighted with the music, and as soon as the singers ceased returned slowly to the wood. When she had nearly reached the end of the field the choristers be- gan to sing again. The hare stopped, turned round, and came swiftly to the same place and re- mained listening in seeming rapture and delight until the singing ceased, when It returned to the woods. Patriotic Chinese Girls Students of the Jlng Nyih girls' scbool at Shanghai have set a new precedent In Chinese war relief work. They have organlzed to help the sol- diers at the front and to send them gifts, including socks and cigarettes. At a recent theatrical entertainment hundreds of girls pledged timmselves to procure funds and gifts for the "Nationalist boys at tbe front." Thumb sucking does look sweet In a baby, but it is disgusting in the three- year-old and sometimes it hangs on until fifteen or sixteen l The habit may cause an ill-formed mouth or in- duce adenoids; and it always inter- tares with digestion. Pinning the leeve over the hand; attaching mit- tens, or putting on cardboard cuffs, which prevent bending the arms at the elbows, are some of the ways to stop the habit. Another bad habitirregularlty in bowel action--is responsible for weak bowels and constipation in babies. Give the tiny bowels an opportunity to set at regular periods each day. If they don't act at first, a little Fletch- er's Caorla will oon regulate them. Every mother should keep a bottle of I t handy to use in case of colic, chol- era, diarrhea, gas on stomach and bowels, constipation, loss of sleep, or when baby is cross and feverish. Its gentle influence over baby's ystem enables him to get full nourishment from his food, helps him gain, Btrengthens his bowels.
